Look at this charming home. It’s Delane and it’s waiting for you. With European and French Country style, this is an 1800 sq. ft. three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, story and a half home. Notice the natural materials, the French chateau-style roofline, the arched accents, and window box for flowers. This is European.
This home is a great choice for a smaller, narrow lot. Notice the front-load garage. I grew up in a home with a front load (vs side load – a garage that isn’t obvious from the front of the house) garage. My dad used to love to ‘sit and watch the world go by’ in a lawn chair with the garage doors up. We didn’t have a proper front porch, so sitting outside the garage was his place. I suppose being able to show off his antique, classic cars encouraged neighbors to stop by and chat too. I have many fond memories of sitting next to my dad and just watching the world from here, as well as having many conversations about life, sitting side by side. Don’t negate the value of a garage and how it can be used as another space for connecting with family and friends.
Delane – Let’s be Unconventional
Let’s start this tour through the garage, not the front door. A small step up and into your home, you are met with a hall to the left, a laundry room to the right, and a closet or shelved storage space. To the left and into the hallway are the double doors to your main bedroom suite. This room has a large walk-in closet and a bathroom with double-sink vanity. While the commode does not have its own room, you will enjoy having a separate tub and shower. The bathroom isn’t huge, but it is more than enough.
Delane – Kitchen and Dining Room
From the master bedroom and a few feet down the hall is your kitchen. An eating area here will be ideal for doing homework, cookie decorating and sharing family time. There is a pantry in the corner of the kitchen as well as plenty of counter space and an island for meal prep. A doorway takes you to the dining room. A long rectangular table with a glass top will fit well and give the illusion of openness and more space, as opposed to a heavy, wood table.
Just to note, there is a patio off the back of the house. A door from the eating area of the kitchen leads out to it. From here, set up a grill, a nice table and chairs and your ideal outdoor space is just beginning to be what you want it to be.
Delane – Great Room and Foyer
The long dining room blends right into the family great room. Spending time around the warm, welcoming fireplace will be the best spot for cool weather nights, movie-watching, and reading. The room blends into your foyer and stairs to the second floor. I can see a comfortable, long chaise in the corner of the room or two comfortable chairs, right under the front window.
The foyer has a closet for umbrellas and coats. There is also a powder room just to the left of the foyer.
Now let’s go upstairs.
Delane – Upstairs
At the top of your L-shaped staircase is where friends and family will find their peace and quiet as well as a bonus room for fun. A balcony overlooks the family room below. However, a bonus room up here offers flexibility for another space to watch tv, play games, set up office space, and exercise equipment, or where teens and their friends hang out. A full bath is located at the top of the stairs and this is the only bathroom on this floor. There are two bedroom suites, each with closets that are long, but not walk-in style. There is a door off the bonus room that accesses attic space for all your holiday decorations and all the ‘extra’ stuff you chose to store.
